On December 10, 2019, we will celebrate our 10-year Anniversary with our first ever fundraising event to commemorate a decade of grassroots change making in the city of Newark and to propel us into an exciting new growth phase. Our program costs $1,000 per child, per year. This includes two semesters of instruction plus summer camp, all at no cost to families. Our goal is to raise $300,000 so that we can serve 300 additional students in 2020.

We invite you to join us in this celebratory moment as a Sponsor. Any donation over $250 is tax-deductible to the donor.

10TH ANNIVERSARY GALA + CELEBRATION

The Newark Chess Club is a 501(c)3 Tax-Exempt Organization. Any donation over $250 is tax-deductible to the donor.

The Newark Chess Club exclusively serves children who attend schools and live in Newark NJ,  a city that is on the move.  For children with limited opportunities to diverse enrichment and experiential learning opportunities that power solutions-oriented thinking and build social-emotional skills, NCC steps in to fill these gaps by providing consistent access to necessary supports, including life-skills interventions and mentorship.
